Alchemy is hosting an appearance by the chef and popular cookbook author Rose Levy Beranbaum on Wednesday, May 1.

The three-course luncheon will be followed by a short discussion and Q-&-A session with the author, who has been referred to as the "Diva of Desserts." Her books include "The Cake Bible," which is currently in its 48th printing and was listed by the James Beard Foundation as one of the top 13 baking books on "the Essential Book List."

Autographed copies of Beranbaum's "The Cake Bible" can be reserved in advance for an additional $35. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Cure PSP-Foundation.

The Alchemy luncheon with Rose Levy Beranbaum is tomorrow 1 p.m. The cost is $35 (or $70 for admission plus the signed book). For information call 410-366-1163.

That's not all for Alchemy this week. On Thursday, owners Debi-Bell Matassa and Michael Matassa will be featured on a new cable show called "Second Act."

Hosted by Paul DiMeo, the popular carpenter and designer best known from nine seasons on two-time Emmy Award-winning "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," the show takes a look at baby boomers at a critical transition point in their lives.

The episode with the Matassas, "Serving Up Success," shows them facing the challenges of opening and maintaining the success of Alchemy.  

"Serving Up Success" airs Thursday on RLTV (Baltimore Comcast Channel 175) at 8:30 p.m.
